Kaskade is the latest artist announced to appear at next week’s International Music Summit (IMS) Engage event in Los Angeles. The one-day conference pairs artists and other industry experts together in a series of unmoderated conversations about the dance music industry.
Joining Kaskade on Wed., April 15 is three time Grammy-winning British producer and musician Stuart Price. Price is known for his work with New Order, Madonna, The Killers, Scissor Sisters, Example, Missy Elliott, and Pet Shop Boys. The two will discuss dance music’s place in entertainment and popular culture.
Other pairings include Sebastian Ingrosso and legendary musician and entertainment mogul Quincy Jones, techno rebel Seth Troxler and hip-hop legend Chuck D, industry icon Lyor Cohen and up and coming manager and mastermind behind Zhu and Krewella, Jake Udell, and nightclub owners Jason Strauss and David Grutman.
IMS Engage is held at the W Hotel in Hollywood. Conference passes are still available for purchase.
IMS is often called “the TED of music conferences” because of its dedication to showcasing the creativity, innovation, and cultural relevance of electronic music and the art of DJ-ing. Events are held annually in Ibiza, Los Angeles, and Singapore.
